The new Power Beauty Soulmates season 2014 has started, with the first Sunday Drive of 2014. And for the first time ever, this Sunday Drive was not members-only; this one was open for any Aston Martin owner. On this beautiful sunny day, twenty-three Astons showed for and a nice drive along the Dutch coast.

Meeting point: Loetje aan ‘t IJ in Amsterdam-Noord
All drivers gathered at the new Loetje location in Amsterdam Noord: Loetje aan ‘t IJ. Aston Martin only VIP parking had been arranged on the roof, which resulted in a nice background for the Aston line-up.
On our way to IJmuiden
The plan was to drive to IJmuiden in convoy, but an accident on the highway forced us to take a different route, spreading the participants into multiple little groups. Luckily all of us arrived at the Tour starting point in time for more photos!
Boulevard Tour starting point: IJmuiden
At the parking area in IJmuiden all participants received their Road Book and started on the actual Boulevard Tour to Noordwijk, via Bloemendaal and Zandvoort.
The Boulevard Tour
The sunny weather was ideal for the trip, especially for those of us driving a Volante or Roadster. However, it also inspired a lot of dutchies to visit the coastal area, which caused a serious traffic jam leaving Zandvoort.
Finish: Hotels van Oranje, Noordwijk
A bit later than planned, all cars arrived in Noordwijk. All Astons parked at the VIP Parking attracted a lot of attention 🙂
